DIY bow, Eazy Fashion dress, So Fab boots
It was very timely that I got this dress on my birthday a couple of weeks ago. And as soon as I got it, I was desperately trying to find the time to take my photos while wearing it outdoors. A dress this cute should be shown to the world and not be taken a photo of under such boring indoor lighting in my room or elsewhere. So when one of my forever best friends, Rach, scheduled a sleepover at her place with me and Den-den, I took the opportunity to make the most of the really nice neighborhood they had.
I've been looking for a nice fit and flare dress for a few months now, and since I'm such a sucker for black and white and stripes for that matter, this dress is so much of a win for me. Adding in the fact that it can be so versatile makes it even more of a win.
As soon as I saw it on the catalogue of Eazy Fashion, I was smitten like a kitten over some cream. Here I am, styling this dress in 2 different ways while making the most of the really weird weather we've been having in Metro Manila lately. It's technically the rainy seasons already, but due to global warming, we've been experiencing the usual intense summer heat AND some rough rains like a stereotyped on-again-off-again Hollywood couple.
If you noticed, the weather in my first set of photos looked like a slightly overcast golden hour. For those who would rather look younger and like things to have a more casual feel (my personal style in a few words), I decided to wear this dress with a pair of black boots and my signature hair bow to make the red stand out from the black and white canvas. I chose to wear minimal accessories for a fuss-free feel to my look as well.
As for the second set, I was going for a more mature look with the hat, red hair, reddish lippie, etc. Also swapped my black boots for some sexy heels for a classier look. Rach and Den-den kept telling me that it's like they were looking at a movie star when I changed for my second set of photos, lol. Long hair really does make me look older (hence my torn decision on whether or not I should grow my hair long again). Darker lippies also give me a more mature look. As soon as thought I wanted to do a youthful & mature look for this dress, I knew I had to use my "sexy bombshell" red wig (that I also wore in this post). I swear to Hello Kitty, this wig reminds me so much of Jessica Rabbit!! I used a black hat to diffuse the sexy redness of the wig. And the sunnies, to me, were a touch of class when matched with the reddish lippie. I can't get any more Old Hollywood Glam than this, lol! Plus sunnies aren't just for the beach and sunny days anymore. They can be worn for those lazy days when you just had to go out but are too lazy to apply makeup and whatever, haha! #FashionTactics
It was kinda ironic that I looked like I just stepped out of Breakfast at Tiffany's and into the sunny streets of New York in the 40's when the skies suddenly turned sour. Den-den kept reminding me during the last few shots we took that it looked like it was gonna rain. And a few minutes after we wrapped up and got back to Rach's house, the rain poured like there was no tomorrow with matching thunder and lightning. Talk about lucky.
On a different note, I know sporting a red wig and all this stuff is still pretty foreign in my country (as compared to Japan and all), but it was kinda annoying (and a little bit creepy) when one of the neighborhood kids was biking and literally stopped and stared for like, 15 minutes while Den-den was taking my photos for me. Normally I wouldn't mind these things as long as I get my shot for my blog. But when the same kid (and his friend) circled the neighborhood again on their bikes to stop and stare at Den-den and me for a second time, okay seriously man, it was a little distracting now. I wanted to ask them what they wanted because they were kinda disturbing the little time we had left for taking photos before it would start to rain. What annoyed me was that the creepy kid on the bike circled around for the 3rd time and actually got off his bike to stand behind Den-den while she was taking my photos just to see the photos she was taking of me! If that wasn't creepy enough, the creepiest part was when the same kid circled around for the 4th time to stare, this time with like, 4 of his other friends on their bikes in tow.... What the hell!!! (ಠ_ಠ) If I wasn't wearing heels, I would literally just run away from all the awkwardness of it all *shivers* No kid, I'm not a celebrity. I'm just a blogger on duty, lol.
Anyhooooo~! Den-den's the only photographer of mine who actually takes test shots before taking my real photos for my blog, lol. One of them turned out to be when I was doing a mirror check using my phone in the most selfie-like moment I can ever get. And yes, I had to stand like this since I was trying not to wobble on my heels and avoid from tumbling down the street like Jack and Jill. Thankfully though, Den-den and I managed to take photos that didn't really make that struggle noticeable. Practice makes perfect!
Cheers from me and my super lovable photographer who never fails to make me laugh~! Lol, let me filter all the humidity and dark clouds away from this photo. Nyaaah~! （〜^∇^)〜〜(^∇^〜）
